Fantasy skin tone ramps

So....Peach E. Keen on GOS led me to Pixel Trade, which led to me snagging ludicrous amounts of alien sims.

Which led to me realizing that I should have a rainbow slider.

Which led me to realizing that MTS was down.

I could:
a) wait a couple days and download the needed sliders
b) make my own, redundant, sliders but have them within a couple hours

I made a slider with a pale rainbow and a brighter rainbow.  I prefer muted, slightly grey colors, so that is what I used. I really tried to make the bright colors a bit more diluted, but CAS really makes the colors pop, and possibly your retinas.   I take no responsibility for that, I blame CAS.

Both the lightest and the darkest look passably  human, so that could be a lot of fun to play with. :)

Then I pushed random buttons and made a noise based slider.   I think it could be fun for a generational project because the children would have a more random appearance, but would still usually be green.  So it's less random then using a rainbow slider?  More scattered?

Edit to add:  I like pushing random buttons, so I now have a set of Fawkes' style skin tones in progress.   So far I have a red, green, blue, orange, yellow-orange, violet, purple, and a various shades of violet-grey.   But I'll wait to finish them up because, really, 2 finished skin colors is enough for one day.   Plus, I can't imagine that there's a large number of people besides me who appreciate the Fawkes sliders, but finds them a little too monotone.

yellow- pale rainbow   teal - chaos alien

lime - chaos alien  plum-dark rainbow

These are just tones, and will show up under the default skin in your game.

I hope someone out there likes them.  I'm still at the Randomly-pushing-buttons stage of making CC, but sometimes that works out ok. :)

I have made the pale end of the rainbow slider a little more pastel and less grey.

Garden is wearing default replacement skin by Ephemera, blush by Evie, eyeshadow by LFB, eyes by Breyete, and a dress by Tomislaw.   The lipstick is on MTS, which is down, but I think it's by Elexis.

Ooh, very nice. Have you ever thought about doing your own fantasy skins?

Aw, thank you Poida :)

I have thought about doing a skin, but not seriously. More like, "It would be fun to make an opal golem type skin." Maybe one day...I'm not there yet, for sure.
